HISTORY OF THE BARANGAY
The term Boctol is believed to have sprung from the two different vernacular words, “ librong taas” and “boctot” Accordingly, there was a famous man named Apolonio Nalasa who lived in Sitio Danao. He is one of the earliest settlers. Everyone knows him because of his book, theLibro de Kompaniya, which the folks recounted as a book of wonder because whatever wishes, will be granted with its use. And since the people were accustomed to use boctol to mean the book (libro) that is tall (taas), they later spoke it to address their place. The other derivation of Boctol, was said to be from the vernacular term boctot, which simply described the look of the muscle arm (biceps) in contraction.
